Future Black Sabbath Album – Readers Poll
Black Sabbath‘s ’13’ remains one of this year’s standout records and given that there has been so much time between when Ozzy Osbourne and his Sabbath cohorts Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler had worked together, the feat is all the more amazing. But with the Sabbath members advancing in age, the question remains if there is another album in them.
Speaking to Revolver, the trio was somewhat non-committal, but still open to the idea. Geezer Butler stated that he hadn’t really thought that far ahead, but is happy with the success of ’13.’ He also stated that even though it’s been successful, the band can’t try to force another record and they will know if there’s another album in them when the time comes.
Guitarist Tony Iommi worries that the next album could be an “anti-climax.” He adds, “I’m sure we’d all like to do one, but I don’t know. Maybe I should talk to the others about it.” Meanwhile, Osbourne says he’s largely dodged the new album question because he doesn’t want to answer questions a year from now if they haven’t advanced on the idea of new music. He adds, “I’ll leave it open. I’m open for anything. I have three albums to deliver of my own solo thing to my record label. We’ll all still be doing music. It’s been a lot of fun doing it with Black Sabbath and I’m not sorry at all for getting back together.”
So, given that all three members seem open to the idea but have yet to lay out any firm plans for another album, do you think that Black Sabbath will release another disc of original music? Vote in our Readers Poll below:
